Redwood Wedding | Big Sur Wedding Photographer | Katie & Garrett

I met Katie and Garrett a few years back when I photographed their engagement at Popoyo beach. Katie told me she was attracted to my humanitarian photography and how I approach photographing people (for those of you who don’t know, when I’m not photographing weddings, I often travel and take photos for NGOs). We had a really fun afternoon taking photographs, and the results were amazing. Katie and Garrett planned on getting married in Nicaragua. Then Covid happened, and the plans changed.  

I was stoked when they approached me again, asking if I could capture their special day, but this time in the US. The wedding venue was Henry Miller Library in the middle of the redwoods on the stunning Big Sur Coast. I was thrilled about the idea, and soon I was in California. I arrived a few days before the wedding to scout the area and meet with the couple. Katie and Garrett were so lovely and welcoming. I felt right at home. 

The wedding preparations took place in a private house in Monterey. And the whole process of getting ready happened in a genuine, warm, family atmosphere. I’m really attracted to this loving atmosphere as it was felt throughout the wedding. After capturing the first look at the breathtaking coastline of Pacific Grove, we traveled to Big Sur. The ceremony and the celebration were held at Henry Millers Library, in the middle of magnificent California Redwoods. What made this venue so spectacular, one of these beautiful, long-lived trees was the backdrop of their altar. It was a gorgeous, unforgettable ceremony followed by an extremely fun celebration with a friend’s live band. They were amazing! It was such a pleasure to see the happiness of the newlyweds, capture their day and celebrate it with them. I had so much fun!

I’m honored that Katie and Garrett trusted me with their photos.  It was amazing to be part of their special day and the beginning of their marriage. They are a genuine, fun, loving couple with loving family and friends. One for the books.
